We are continuing our Wellness Wednesday lessons. So far we've talked about eating a healthy breakfast every day that includes a protein, a fruit or veggie and a whole grain.  Next, we've talked about eating 5-9 fruits and veggies daily, then yesterday we discussed limiting or eliminating sweet drinks.  On March 28, we will talk about limiting screen time to less than 2 hours.  Any student choosing to make one or more of these healthy lifestyle changes can be a guest on Wellness Wednesday via RDNN!  Contact Nurse Christie at 469-752-6209 or christie.camizzi@pisd.edu.

Your child’s school has been chosen to be part of The Cooper Institute® (CI) and United Way of Metropolitan Dallas’ (UWMD) Healthy Zone School Recognition Program. This two-tier program was designed to recognize schools for their healthy practices (Healthy Zone Schools) and assist schools in creating healthier environments (Healthy Zone Schools – In Training).
The purpose of the Healthy Zone School Recognition Program® is to honor schools for their healthy practices and assist schools that wish to create healthier environments. To evaluate the effectiveness of the project, The CI and UWMD have developed a research team to evaluate changes in the fitness, activity, participation in promotions, and health attitudes through the use of FitnessGram® and ActivityGram® assessments, surveys, and associated materials. The ultimate goal is to help enhance the promotion of physical activity, fitness, nutrition, and health. The project will provide valuable information about the effectiveness of using health promotions to increase the health of their schools. The de-identified data collected will not be shared with anyone except for the research team.

Your school has elected to participate in this exciting new project. As a part of the study:
       Your child will complete physical fitness assessments from the FitnessGram® test battery;
       Your child will be asked about their physical activity habits using three questions that are part of FitnessGram®;
       Teachers will be asked to implement health activities and promotions with the assistance of CI and UWMD;
       Teachers will be asked to complete annual surveys to collect information about perceptions of new programming;           
       Teachers will be asked to share activity and/or promotion information (photos, videos) with CI, UWMD; and
       Schools will work with CI and UWMD to develop a volunteer engagement opportunity.

The project is being viewed as a part of the school physical education, nutrition, and health curriculums, but we would like to process the information we collect to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. We may publish the findings to share results with other schools and professionals, but no individual information will ever be shared. To ensure confidentiality, all of the data will be tracked using coded ID numbers which means student names will not be stored in the database. 

We wanted to let you know about the project and request your cooperation, assistance, and support. Parents play a crucial role in promoting healthy lifestyles so we encourage you to support the program and promote physical activity and healthy eating in your homes. As mentioned above, the project will seek to enhance and provide new opportunities for children to be physically active, eat healthy, and be healthy in and out of school.

On Thursday, December 7, 2017, a team of PISD, certified screeners will be coming to do a scoliosis check on Robinson's 8th graders, in accordance with Texas state law.  The purpose of the screen is to recognize curvatures of the spine at their earliest stages so that appropriate treatment can be initiated should it be necessary.  Students will be screened individually, ensuring privacy and girls should wear a bra or swim suit top so the spine, shoulders and rib cage are visible.  A letter will be sent to the parents of those students whose screening and re-screening results indicate they may need medical evaluation.  If, for religious reasons, you do not wish to have your child screened, please submit a notarized affidavit of exemption to me, Christie Camizzi, RN, School Nurse, prior to the scheduled screening.  The form may be obtained from the clinic.  If your student is not screened by school personnel, please provide documentation of the screening results from your health care provider. Thank you so much!
